I setup my NETGEAR FSM726 and NETGEAR GS724TS that is both 24-Ports switch in diverse locations. Both are connected with a fiber port but the two cannot interact with each other. I cannot connect on any of the two. There is a blinking light on the fiber port but I cannot get a stable connection. Can someone please help me? Thanks.
NETGEAR Switches Connecting Issue with Fiber Port
When working with the fiber optics you will need to be careful that with multimode fibers you use 850 or 1300 nm light sources, and with the single mode fibers that you only use 1310 or 1550 nm. Therefore you will need to check that first and see if both of them have been designed to work on same wavelength.
Once you have established that, you can then use plug-in cards and then take care that fiber optics can connect with only one 10Base or 100Base or 1000Base on both sides. You will also need to check if cards work with same speed. Another thing that you have to be cautious about is that transmit fiber port on one side has been designed to receive from the fiber port on the other side
Also ensure that the switch ports work have been configured to work on same 10/100/1000Base.
